You can buy ip boosts with real money so you can get better, faster runes.

runes dont effect the game that much dude. if you think they do then you are sadly mistaken

Edit: so apparently im wrong? cause ya know runes only help during laning phase really but w/e they dont give you that big of an advantage if any at all. you can have full rune pages and still get dunked by someone with no rune pages

Runes effect the game a lot actually.
The thing is most people have a page or two ready by level 30 without blowing IP on every champ they can.

No one NEEDS so many runes, some people like to stick with one role or a couple of champs.
2pages is enough for a casual player.
More than that is for people really in to the game and want to be competitive.

You can't pay to win in this kind of game. Runes are big helps, but theyre not gamebreaking.

You can also get IP for free. You're only buying shortcuts.

Implying you can play ranked without at least 16 owned champions.

Oh yeah, and you riot lovers that don't give a **** about waiting 24 hours before playing a game. Have fun not playing and waiting for a glitchy, unbalanced game to come back up and wait in line. If you have enough money for a PC ($400 +) you have enough for a real game.

By the time you get to the point where runes matter and people care about stuff like that, you should have enough for a good set of runes.


If you don't, then that's your fault for spending your IP poorly.
